Japan Airing More S. Korean TV Dramas

2006/03/08 | Permalink | Source

The popularity of South Korean TV dramas in Japan continues to soar through premium satellite channels.

A Korean Broadcasting Institute report said Tuesday that Japanese satellite network BS aired last month nine Korean dramas on five of its channels, up from five dramas on four channels in February last year.

Another satellite broadcaster, CS, aired 55 Korean TV dramas on eight channels, up from 45 last year.

BS Nihon also produced a show on Korean entertainment and pop culture, and BS Asahi regularly airs a program on Korean pop stars.

BS-i will soon broadcast a concert of the singer Boa and a special documentary on actor Jang Dong-gun.

The institute says the popularity of Korean pop culture has spurred Japanese broadcasters to create new programs.
